Over Potato Planter Use 

Special 'Meeting of Commer-

Important Subject 

A special meeting of the Commer-, 
dal club -was held last Thursday 
evening to confer with P. E. Balmer of 
St. Paul, who explained the farm di- 
veiyfication bill now before congress. 
Pennington county, had not ijreviously 
been in the territory to receive some 
of this $5p,-iJQO,000 appropriation, but 
due to the strong arguments given by 
the business glen and farmers pres- 
ent, the representative! stated that he 
■would recommend Pennington as one 
of the counties to be "included under 
"the proposed law. 

The federal census for 1920 showed 
that Pennington county had 7 per cent 
of farms ^vithout cattle, 34 per cent 
without swine and 9 per cent without 
poultry. The average farm of Penn- 
ington county consisted of 233 acres, 
with only 14 head of cattle, 5 sheep, 
3 hogs and' 53 chickens. The club 
drew up resolutions stating these fig- 
ures and the need for more livestock 
in the county. This resolution was 
endorsed by the bankers. Commercial

stock and the amount loaned to each

fits to be derived from such loans 

The last case of the year came be- 
fore Judge N. W. Tarrant at 2 p. m., 
December 8^ when! Halvor Viken 
brought civil suit against Owen Weck- 
werth for the use of |a potato plantec- 

Mr. Viken owned ft potato planter, 
which he said Mr. jWeckwerth had 
used last spring without permission. 
About 12 or 16 acres of potatoes were 
supposed to have" beeai planted and ac- 
cordingly ?26 charges were brought 
against Mr. Weckwerth. Thia was 
not paid. -' ■. 

Mr. Weckwerth diimed he had got 
the planter through Mr. McCrura, that 
he had planted orily| about one and a 
half acres and had paid the usual^sura 
per acre for the usejof the planter to 
Mr. MdCrum as (le Ihad received the 
machine from him. j 

It was finally discovered' that Mr. 
Viken had let Mr; McCrum use the 
planter last spring, and Mr. McCram 
had let Mr. Weckwerth use it for a 
time, and the aifairjwas straighteiied

Last Thursday- night or Friday 
morning a daring Irarglary was com- 
mitted a(;"tbBi'SaTe-U-Moneysto.iie; on 
LaBree ajireone. The robbers entered 
by way of a rear window and smashed, 
the door' connecting: the rear - room 
with the' sales department "of the 
store. They made away with goods 
valued at between $400 and fSOO.. A 
definite knowledge of- the amotmt of 
goods ' stolen .'Will not. be known .until 
an inventory is taken, However, the 
thieves are thought, to be persons 
who make a spedalty of just such 
work as they '^d not break open the 
safe which stood in the same room, 
and though some things were scatt^-" 
ed around it was not the wholesale 
mixup that naturally would follow a 
robbery by persons" who had ho defin- 
ite object in view. . Many suits. were 
taken, besides" underwear, shoes and 
sweaters, and miscellaneous .- arti.cles 
which have not yet been checked, iip. 

A car is known .to. hs^ye been-nwd'

had passed^ at. about . 3:40 Friday

Farmers End Argument In 
Court; Torgen Skomedahl 
Tries Handling Own Case 

On December 27, an altercation 
was settled in the munidpal court by 
Judge N. W. Tarrant which promis- 
ed to have been interesting had all 
the witnesses appeared at the trial. ' 

On Wednesday of last, Ole T. Ose, 
had a warrant sworn out calling Tor- 
gen Skomedahl to account because of 
bad language used against Mr., Ose 
when the two met on the street in this 
dty on th6 IBth. It seems that Mr. 
Ose and Mr. Skomedahl were settling 
an argument with jvords and in the 
heat of the moment, Mr. Skomedahl 
is alleged to have declared that Mr. 
Ose was "a drunkard, a thiefj an' 

Beth men are fatmers northeast of

Upon bdng called before the judge 
on Thursday, Mr. Skomedahl immeS-

State Association Begins 

New Year With Neariy 

Perfect Support 

f> . 

Co-operative "creameries are solidly 
behind the maiketing plan now being 
perfected by the Sales Department of 
the Minnesota Co-operative CreMner- 
ies' association, according to H. F. 
Meyer, manager. Up to Dec. 24. Z84 
chreameries had had signed the stand- 
ard agreement, under the terms ol 
which batter selling operations of 
members creameries will be conelat- 
^d for the benefit of all. These 
aercemcnts represent an annual ont- 
put of more than 70,000,000 pounds. 
i The state association will begin its 
tbird vear of operation as one of the 
jnost "successful farmer-owned bua- 
ie'=5 associations in the country. It 
started two years ago under a two- 
year contract. During/ this period 
470 creameries in the state jomed 
tlie movement. The number has m^ 
ireased slowlv and steadily, as non 
member creameries come to apprea- 
ate its importance. , . 

i It enters its tUrd year with- all but 
■four or five of the original agreements 
in force. Directors of a few cream- 
eries have cancelled their agreements 
■bending presentation of renewal to 
the patrons at annual mcetmgs to be 
iield eariv in January. Renewals m 
everv case are expected. 
1 "The finest thing about our new 
marketing department, ■■ said A. J. 
McGuire, general manager,_ "is that 
the agreements already signed in- 
(ilude creameries that are making the 
best butter in the state. The assooa- 
tion'= greatest accomphshmcnt is- the 
fact that it ahs provided an avraue 
through which the members have 
learned to co-operate for mutual good. 
The task before us in 1924 will be to 
"make good' in, marketing to as great 
or greater degree as we have in the 
service field thus far."

Birer FaUa (and 



The need'Of getting a convenient division of time into 

days and years which correspond, with the movements 

oi the earth and sun, is jiot suffident explanation of! the 

New Year's festival. ' 

We seek contsantly a realization of completeness; of 

^ s beginning,- a middle and the end. Life which' 

formless; must have form given it. It must have its 

stopping places, where it relaxes by a fire and is genial. 

The New Year's festival is an inn whicli folks reach 

at the end of a long journey. They sit a while ahd-are 

merry. They take up their journey again. 

As a matter of convenience we call January 1st New 

Year, whereas a matter of fact every day is a New 

Year, whereas of existence about which we need to be 

' concerned,- for our lives do not ebb and flow like ocean 

tides nor change with the seasons. 

Life is a whole, and will be as perfect as we choose 
to make _it. i 

■ The more careful our preparation for taking up (the 
duty of living the more readily can \ye adapt ourselves 
to the ways of the world, and greater will be our use- 
fulness as well as our share of comfort and peace. ; 

Custom has designated New Years Day as a time;for 
starting owr again — as a day for beginning a new effort 
— a determination to rise above past weaknesses and fail- 
ures.. A long time ago Oliver Goldsmith said: "Our 
greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every 
time we fall." We are going to stumble and fall — 
as citizens,- as- states, and as nations mistakes will: be 
made. / 

The need of the hour is good citteenship— and diat 
does not mean following blindly ambitions and designing 
men with little sympathy in the perpetuation of repub- 
lican institutions men who have no particular interest 
in the general welfare of the people or the advancement 
of civilization and Christianity, except as it contributes 
to their personal-fpolitical. power or wealth. : 

If every man and woman could be made to feel and 
realize in every fibre of their tjeing that they are -in- 
dividual stockholders is this great co-operative govern- 
ment — that no man on earth has more right to his say- 
. so than ybu have, then, and not till then, will g6od 
dtizenship be fully recognized and ppre democracy riile. 
This is a fitting season to discard ^e mental attitude 
of self-depreciation asd demand the best there is in ^If 
and in the world. . i 

. May it be a Happy and Prosperous New Year to jail 
leaders and to all peoples, is the sincere wish of The 

with their grotesque cbstuines, ^d:dine mtkrtsifunding 
hilaiity, so';thf;pje^re Mdtfe-fljf -t^^ 
joynjents that;tna^;be,h'nWtes'sin'd^^

The philosophical -persbii-m^ well '^coinbine bbtfi 
points of view. His life is ooiersideil if,, tfie^e ii . jioV 
merry nfaking in it. New Vear's is an' appropriate- time 
for it. But also, he needs, like th6 'old' Eomansagaini 
to seek for some moments of seclusidta, when be ,t(>cr 
plucks from the sources of power" th(»e nwtives o( Wor- 
ship jand purpose that shall' hdp another year to bring 
him substantial results in die harvest of life, 


A: bulletin issued some years ago by the University 
of Wiscofsin's agricultural experiment station, giy^, the 
storj" o;f results secured by farmers' dubs. , A typical (jne 
was the Interstate Park Farmers' Club, of Polk county^ 
1 he achievements of this dub were thus.suiiHnarized; '■ 

"III like manner there has been improvement in ihe 
quality of the live stodc and the management of farm 
business. , Several live stock shipping assodations and 
othef organizations wholly or in part for the pu.-pose 
co-operation, have grows out of the dub agit^tion. 

All over the country organizations of farmers can 
found that have secured similar gains. 

Some folks^nay think, wheir farmers and other coun- 
try people meet in such a sodety, that's about all they 
get is a good time. But the notable raults reported 
by this organization, which could be matched in many 
others, suggrat that other positive benefits come. 

The old time farmer led a somewhat Solitary life 
whidi tempted him to get into mental asd industrial 
ruts.: But when they began to form these dubs, alid 
different men. told their various experiences, the eflfect' 
was tp stimulate others. The man who heard what some 
ueigl)bor had done, was encouraged to try and see 
he could do the same thing.

The pobllc, jthanks td: Senator 
Borah, vSJI learn all about' that dread- 
fgl EosaiaJi eott^)li»cy to plant the 
red flag OB the 'White Honae. ' 

Already part of the horriblei ruth 
has leaked out. ;A secret service mail 
says that Bussian' Coinninnists, dis- a literary society; met In a 
haU to New York, 

Yon don't need to be told that, from 
such a' meeting, it is only -one step 
to ,'selzlng ^a nation oi one hundred 
and ten million and planting the 
bloody red flag on the White House. 
■.The people can never'be grateful 
enough td Secretary Hughes for pre- 
venting that. Paul Revere, in Ms 
ride; the igsntleman that carried the 
news from Ghent to Alx, or the Greek 
soldier who set the first Marathon rec- 
ord, iiiust make way for Charles 
Evans Hughes, who kept the red flag 
off, the roof of the 'White'HouBe.

King George, of Greece, was noti- 
fied that Greece could do without him 
and was sent from the country, tak-, 
ing Ms Queen with hiin. .King George 
will not, . like Henry the Second - of 
England, exciaim, ".?hanie on a beaten 
King," turn his face to the wall and 
die. He will turn his face' toward 
Paris or Monte Carlo, excellent cook- 
ing and plenty of snoohs in both places 
and play King in safeftr. That's bet- 
ter thanbeingia real JKing anywhere 
outside of England now. '' 

The demapd fof &e reducbon of taxes is very «._ 
phatic,yet progressive 'dtiis miist keep adding improve- 
ments. If a dty is just satisfied lyith- the equipment 
that it has, its defects are likely -to lead people to avdid 
it. New concerns and residents hate^to mOve .into a 
place' that seems to have a habit of stagnation. 

But if a town, tries to improve its plant from year to 
year, with better streets, more parts asd playgrinincfe, 
etc., then that dty wins friends and people are likely ito 
move into it and start business there. I 

The.effect.of that is'to make more employment for 
the young people, so that not so many will have to move 
dsewhere. The folb who vvant to keep their sons and 
daughters at home, will accomplish sometHing to thlati 
end by payinrth'e taxes needful for a steady program kf 
betterment. ,

Minnesota can go ahead with its extensive road- 
building program with - good assurance that its. oym 
mosey will be supplemented with funds from' the 'iia- 
Hional treasury'. President Coolidge is a good-advoca'te, 
and he believes the Federal government pi»perly ha^ a 
part in the development of them. ' ' , 

The President does not deenj that he is inconsistent 
in making governmental economy and tax reduction hii 
most important single plea, and at the same time pro^ 
posing government aid in road building. It is his con- 
viction — and the conviction is shared by all straight- 
thinking citizens — ^^that the money spent wisely for ;dad 
construction comes quickly back to the public in general 

Partnership betiveen the Federal government and the 
several state governments is an excellent thing for several 
reasons. In the first place, it helps to crystallize in the, 
public mind the thought that good roads are a ,matter 
of national concern. Secondly, the partnership brings 
about an articulation of improved highways in an inter- 
state way that' would not be accomplished in the saine 
degree in any other vfay. Thirdly, the partnership gives 
the best possible assurance that the money will be wisely, 
spent, that a maximum of good will result from each 
dollar used, and that temptation to local favorism -will 
he reduced to a minimum. 

Good roads are indispensable in a motor car age and 
country like ours. Sdf-propelling vehicles have very 
greatly jrfBadened the radius of highway travel. Peo^e 
from state tb. state now as they used td go from town- 
ship to tftwjishlp, or from county to county. ' 

Congress is not likely to interfere seriously with what 

President Coolidge iias proposed in the budget for rqad 

purposes. That policy would not be popular out over 

the country, certainly not popular in Minnesota and thi

Back 747 years before Christ, the old Remaps uied 
to out into the woods-consecrated to Strenia, the god-

As I have plenty of tim_e I will 
write and tell you about our trip "out 
here, as we now 1 have reached^ tos 
Angeles. Svenke Dahl, Henry Hoard 
and my family were together until 
we reached Seattle, Wash., when they 
left us and contmued soutii, while we 
stopped and visited friends around 
there for a while. \' \ 

We did not drive very fast as we 
wanted to see the country; and as we 
were pretty well fixed up for eamptag 
we were in a position to! enjoy our- 
selves thoroughly as we Icould stop 
whenever we wanted to.- !In the west- 
ern part of North Dakota faid eastern 
Montana the country was rou^ and 
hilly. At Beach, N. D.; we paid Z% 
cents per gallon for gasoUne; which 
was the highest price of anywhere 
during the -trip. -We spent a few days 
at Miles City, which is mostly a cattle 
country. Around Billmgs, Mont a lot 
of sugax beets, are raised, and thev 
surely have a convenient, way of ban- 
dlmg them. Regular' beet racks and 
unloadtog platforms are used, which 
you should also have to Thief River 
FaUs. At Whitehall, Mont, we hit 
the real mountains.. All of us thought 
the journey through this part was' the 
most enjoyable of the whole trip. 

From Spokane we went to Walla 
Walla and then up through the Yoki- 
ma valley, to Seattle. Apples' were 
justbemg harvested at the time and 
the farmers . had signs up, "Fancy 
Jonathans, 26c Per Box." There was 
no sale for them at all. The farmers 
certainly have their troubles out here, 
as they cannot get a square deal; - - 

We stayed around Seattle .and En- 
umclaw for a week visittog old- 
friends, then continued south: We 
called on S. Rogers on the. way to 
Portland. He' surely was glad to sec 
us. We also saw the Bordens, who

SUPPOSE that you earned your living by doing housqworK and ha3 
saved Up a few hundred dollars; then a slick salesman of awildlcatpro-' 
motion came along and persuaded you to put your little nest tgg in his 
wotthless proposition. What would you think about "investments" ?, 

How are hard working^ 
_ inexperienced p:eople to 
be assisted- in 4istin-'y 
guishing good invest- 
ments from *'fakds".? 

This is one of the prob- 
lems discussed in our 
npijff booklet "The\ 
,Wpman in the Case"*. , 

lYou will be interested in 
this plain, little fact sto- 
ry by a married woman, 
who learned how to 
help herself and to safe- 
guard the sayings of 
others; Common sense 
is better than scheming. 

One of the simplest 
rules is to invest only in 
organizations close to 
home, which have an 
actual record of success 
over a long period of 

Success and prosperity are cheering things. They are much closer to the grasp of 
the average man or woman than many suppose. When hard working people in all .^ 
occupations can put one of the largest btisin^s organizations to work for them the % 
door of financial independence is trtily open to aJl. |

Assured of 20 Times as Much 
Business as Old Agency 
In 1923. ■ 

^"■'Thenew Minnesota Potato Growers' 
Exchange celetratgd Near Year by an- 
nouncing tlie official acreage under 
contract had passed the 100,000 mark. 
. With this volume of business assured, 
the new association, should it start 
operations today, would handle 20 
times as much business as did the old 
Minnesota Potato Exchange in 1923 
and about nine times its tonnage in 
its. best year. These computations 
, were made after adequate deductions 
had been ih'ade for poor stock, local 
consumption, and seed purposes. ., 

The casK'.vMue of the business now 
assured the new. exchange at 50 cents 
a bushel, is estimated at $4,800,000 a 

The gross membership on January 
1 was 6,792, and was~growing at the 
rate of more than 150 contracts a 
day. X lull in contract receipts is 
expected until January 10, due to the 
fact that the field force was idle dur- 
ing the Christn^as week and voluntary 
workers were expected to' remain at 
home. ^ " 

Kittson county established a new 
record last week when additional con- 
tracts received at .the St. Paul ofiQce 
sent the oiBcial acreage signed there 
to more than SO per cent of all the 
potatoes in the county. 

Steary progress was reported from 
Clay and Polk counties. These two 
areas, first and second in the state, 
in point of production, expect to re- 
port their quotas by the middle of 
this month, according to C. H. Zea- 
land, secretary of the special Red 
River Valley committee. 

For the time being,, contract sign- 
ing was especially, active in the East- 
em counties, where the last organiz- 
ation effort- necessarily .must center. 
The Red River Valley section needs 
but 12,000 acres .to complete its or- 
iginal and admittedly high quota esti- 

tions, eoncdved tlft iW' of nakiiig 
a feature production yrhbse story was 
baSt upon the hoihan foibles tliat put 
so maai faith in "tncfc." • 
; The result has been ;a highly amus- 
ing cpmedyndrama of Tare.delHeation 
by Hinea aqd an all-star cast that is 
said to be well-nigh perfect. .CsntalDT' 
ing %9 it does a we^th of comedy 
situations 1^ is balanced nicely with 
enough dramatic moments to mfdce 
the production one th^t is apparently 
very much worth while .- 

Interesting to note is the fact that 
I'LuctV boasts of Violet Merseieau 
in its cast. } Miss Mei^ereau has the 
;mique distinction of having been the 
only American in the cast of "Nero," 
thj great spectacle photoplay th^t was 
made in Italy. Miss Mercereau was 
chosen by [the Pox Corporation to 
spend a year in Italy; as the leading 
lady of thisiproduction. So great was 
her success Ithat Producer C. 0. Burr, 
who is the sponsor for "Luck," imme- 
:diately engaged her to play the lead- 
ing feminine role opposite Johnny 
Hines. Alsb included in the cast are 
Robert Edeson, Charlie Murray, Ed- 
mund Breese, Flora I^ch, and Polly 
Moran — truly one of ; the greatets 
casts that bias ever graced a big pic- 
ture. "Luck" com^ to'l^e Princess

Ask Creameries to 

'{Back Selling Plan 

"We hope there is no creamery in 
the state that will help the American 
Stores company in its. fight to .block 
creameries in their effort to establish 
their own marketing program," says 
an offidal'statement issued last week 
by officers of the Minnesota Co-op- 
erative Creajneries' association. 

The statement recites the fact that 
the American .Stores 1 company has 
notified creameries whose~butter it 
has been buying thati "Signing any 
agreement which conflicts with your 
dealing direct with os'l will result in 
a demand for the' immediate return 
of equipm_ent for printing butter 
which ths' company sella under its 
own private {brand. 

"Obviously," says Ai J. McGuire, 
general manager, "the plan of the 
chain store ^is to holdi a club' over 
creameries by refusing jto buy butter 
from farmerrowned plants, tie direct- 
ors of which sign the association's 
marketing agreement. iWe have in- 
formation supporting the statement 
that the .cham store expects to obtain 
its supplies ifrom other creameries. 
The whole' question of establishing a' 
state butter [marketing agency de- 
pends upon ibe loyalty of creameries. 
If creameries work together and re- 
fuse to follow the dictation of the 
chain store, in a very short time we 
will be in position to give all member 
creameries as good or a better oflt-

The Pennington county board of 
commissioners held their first meeting 
of the new'year on Tuesday, with .all 
members present. The first meeting 
of each year is largely given over to 
organisation and attending to matters 
of administration in county aairs. 

A. \V. Hanson, commissioner from 
the First di.strict, was elected chair- 
man of the -ooard for the ensuing 
year, and J. S. Roy of the Fourth was 
chosen as vice chairman. (Jlommittee 
appointments were postponed luitil 
the ne.\t meeting of the board, which 
mil be, held at the call of the county 
auditor! . ' , ., . 

The sum of ?6,000 was levied for 
the county sinking fund, and the board 
approved a petition for a state aid 
road extending from the S.0O round 
house north past the golf links to the 
Marshall county line. It is expected 
work on the proposed improveraent 
will be started as soon as conditions 
next spring will permit. ^, , , 

By a vote of th^ee to two, the board 
refused to grant an appropriation of 
?2,000 for aid of the farm bureau. 
Messrs. McGinn and Roy voted in fav- 
or^f the appropriation, while Hanson, 
Larson and Olson registered their 
votes in opposition. _ 

The board voted an appropriation 
of 5125 for the Red River Valley De- 
velopment association, to assist that 
organization in its work of bringing 
to public notice the resources of this 
section of the state. 

The Thief River Falls Times was 
awarded the contract for the county 
printing for 1924 and the board des- 
ignated that publication as the ofiicial 
paper for the ensuing year.. 

Salaries for next year ^wBre-fixed- 
by the board. The only change made 
was in the salarj- of the court house 
janitor, Paul Miderigh, who was 
granted an increase from $60 to $60 
per month. Other salaries remain the 
same, with the sheriff receiving $1,- 
320 per year, the county superintend- 
ent of schools $1,440, and the county 
attorney $1,200, with an extra allow- 
ance of $300 for office rent. The 
county auditor's salary is '$2,000. 

Alter attending to a few minor de- 
tails and passing the usual grist' of 
bills, the board adjourned to meet at 
the call of the county auditor.

Egg cases will be the specialty of the 

factory aithopgh. any kind, of a box 

ordered can be made, iand with the 

machinery . now installed, 4,000 boxes 

can be turned out every 24 hours. To, 

make the boxes, green! poplar wood 

will be used and it is thought that in 

the vicinity of Thief River Falls there 

is enough of ;this timber to keep the 

factory well supplied for two or three 

years. ' f; ' ■ 

At present jthe factory is located in 
the building 'formerly known as the 
Sundahl garage, but" this- location is 
temporary, ifo the spring the factory 
will be moved to a point near one of 
the railroads and should circumstances 
warrant it, l^ger quarters *ill be oc- 
cupied. ! I _ 

The beginning, of course, is simply 
a trial in this line,*^t the idea hfe 
been threshed outvery thoroughly and 
it is thought! that the demand- among 
jobbers for ttns particular class, of 
goods will keiep the factory turning to 
capacity. i

.Nfext week brings to .a close the 
first semester, which is the- first Half 
of the school year, and plans are 
being made, now^of the organization 
of the work for the second semester,* 
The last three days of ne:^ week will 
be occupied in- high^ school with the 
giving of the midyear examinations, 
while the grade work will go on in the 
usua) manner. 

Some changes will be made. thru-, 
out the school system. About 3D stu- 
dents are candidates for graduation 
from -the dghth grade and for en- - 
trance into high school. Plans are 
completed for. their accommodation. 
Mrs. Campbell, who has substituted 
in the eighth grade during the first* 
semester will, therefore, n^onger be 
regularly employed. On the other 
hand, Harold 0. Hand, a graduate of 
Macalester college, has been engaged 
afi ■ an additional teacher in high 
school No -additional teaching force 
wil Ibe hired to ' 
ginn'ers who are to start at iiis time 
since reorganization, of the lower de- 
partments will make room for the new 
ones. . .^. f 

Parents of children becoming six 
on or before March 24, should make it 
a point to notify Superintendent SiHi- 
leyas early as possible -in regard to 
such child or cluldren in case " they 
wish them to start school at tiiis 
time. It should also be kept -in mind 
that any child eligible for first grade 
entrahce according to"Hhe above rule 
should present himself for admission 
before twa weeks have elapsed. This 
requirement . is adhered to in order 
that the class that starts on time may . 
not have to be held back for tbe bene- 
fit.of.. a ilate entrant. .It is also of in- 
dividual benefit to the pupil; for a 
late start means a poor start, and 
chances -are the child will become dis- 
couraged and will not do well regard- 
less of natural ability. 

Looking back over the semester, it 
must be admitted that the work thus 
far has been of- an unusually high 
order. Parents, school board, sup- 
erintendent, teachers, and pupils are 
on the whole well slitisfied and enthu- 
siastic over the work accomplished.

Hiram Johnson seems to be well satisfiedi that some- 
thing is wrong with evcrythihgjn the country. 

■ The old fashioned men who had wool mittens and 
ear muSs were not ashamed to-make use of them last 
week. _ . 

"Too much Johnson" is a sentiment which appeals to 
no one like it does to our old friend Henrik Shipstead, 
senior senator from Minnesota. 

The moonshiners who come before Judge McGee for 
sentence have no need of a fortune teller to predict what 
is going to happen to them. 

The new city administration respectfully advises all 
dispensers of moonshine to seek new pastures as the roads 
arc liable to be rough in this neck of the woods.

iThe Owatonna JoiimalTChronicle which passed its 
64th milestone last week is to be congratulated upon 
its achievement. If the readers of that splendid news- 
paper could know the, thousand hills that have been 
scaled by the management during the years gone by in 
order to reach the present state of perfection, they 
would more; than ever appreciate the Journal-Chroni- 
cle. It is a fine community newspaper, well edited' and 
mechanically; nearly perfect, and best of all; it stands 
for all that is dean -and uplifting in Steele county.

Inasmuch as it does riot seem probable that the pres-

paper has often wished that widespread agitation against 
the horrible mutilatfon andtortiir© of^dumb animals '•: ••

be- glad to assist our friend- from Waseca in every possi-- 
bit way to put a stop to a practice which is revolting to' ; : 
the mind of every humane citizen. It seems to us that 
here is a good field for service on the part of the welfare 
leagues and women's organizations of the country, and 
we believe they could start a movement so effective that . 
every medical college in the 'fiountry would be obliged ■ 
to heed it. 


- Just because Mabel Normand's chaffeur shot a drunk-

Leap year or no leap year, the Thief River Falls girls 
are going to let the old order of things.continue — that Is

They're right too. 

'Col. Chas. March, of Litchfield, who has been select- 
ed to conduct the Coolidge campaign in Minnesota, is 
exactly the kind of a man for a job of that character. 
He is a successful farmer and business man, too busy 
to be a jib seeker, and has never been so closely allied 
OTth the factional differences which exist in Minnesota 
as to injure the President's chances in the state. With 
Mr. March; iii charge and the President gaining daily 
in popular favor, there should, to use the yemaculair,

\ According to the figures of State Bank Examiner 
Veigel twenty-eight banks dosed during the p^t year 
have been~re-opened. This is a. gratifying conditipn of.

aiy embarrassment of the banks is being relieved by nat- 
ural conditions. This section of Mmnesota is regard^ 
as being well onythe road to norriiat conditioris. ag^iri,

c^ assure them of their daily bread

The business man likewise realizes 
thit he must either rise or fall with

Finds True Friends and a 

Bright Future Here After 


Musician - Teacher | Makes 
Trip in Response to Let- 
ters of Countryman. 

In Vienna, Austria, one day several 
months ago, a letter came to an old 
lady. This letter came from Kratka 
in'~. Pennington county, Minnesota, 
America— the heart of that great 
country which is the land of promise 
to all Europeans. The letter describ- 
ed the country in detail, and dwelt 
particularly upon the latent culture of 
people residing there and which re- 
quired only the efforts of a teacher 
to bring it out, in the opinion of the 
writer of the letter. The writer also 
told of fabulous wealth which had 
been accumulated by others who had 
emigrated to this country. 

The kindly old lady in Vienna had 
a very .dear friend, an accredited teach- 
er in -several languages and graduate 
of a Vienna consei^'atory in piano. 
This young lady. Miss Hermine Exner, 
had often expressed a desire to go to 
the wonderful America to live. She 
had gone through the war as a nurse 
and the horror of it all had so im- 
pressed itself upon her mind that re- 
lief seemed possible only amid new 
surroundings. She wanted to be far 
removed from places which to her had 
come to mean broken arid limbless 
young bodies and wrecked lives. The 
young lady felt that by getting away 
from all this she could go on as a 
musician and teacher of languages, 
finally reaching the goal which had 
originally been her aim. 

The old lady replied to the' letter 
from Kratka, asking for_jjnore infor- 
mation concerning the country and the 
opportunities it held foi^petson with 
the qualifications possessed by the 
young lady in question. The reply 
stated that a teacher of French and 
piano, especially, would find a field 
worthy of her best efforts right in 
Kratka, The writer made it plain 
that he was in a position to assist the 
young lady in getting started and of- 
fered the use of his home! for studio 
purposes until she could ; make ar- 

Miss Exner was naturally much im- 
pressed upon reading the letter and 
saw the dream of her IBe coming true. 
Slie immediately 'set about the task 
of securing her passports and sailed 
«n the Majestic from Cherbourg, 
France, in November. The long jour- 
ney across the ocean, and the thou- 
sands of miles from New York to 
Kratka, were at last completed, and 
the young lady found herself in the 
land of her dieains. Life on the 
Kratka farm proved ^ deep disap- 
pointment to Miss Elner, however, 
and the future looked) anything but 
bright: She soon foumi that the rosy 
picture painted by the writer of the 
letter was immensely overdra\vn, and 
instead of the splendid opportunity 
-ivhich.she had been led to believe 
awaited her here she found nothing 
but a chance to take part in the ordi- 
nary mrnial duties connected with 
life on the farm. 

About five weeks ago John Cronk- 
hite of this city, went Kratka to look 
after a farm which he owns there, anu 
chanced to meet Miss Exner. She 
told him her story and the keen dis- 
appointment she was suffering. Mr. 
Cronkhite immediately took charge of 
the situation and .-t present Miss 
Exner is stayin.'r at the Cronkhite 
home, 20) Ma'rkley avenue south. Mrs. 
Cio.ikhlte has taken Miss Exner in 
hand ami is doing much; to improve 
the voung lady's position. The lat- 
ter is nov.' convinced that Minne.sota 
is not Fuch a bad place after all— in 
fact. she. thinks it really vronderful 
after having mado the acquaintance of 
real.'whoie-souled American people, j 

Mi^r. Exner, in spite of the keen clis- 
appointment suffered upon, her ar- 
rival in America, has nothing but 
praise for America and its- people, 
.^he states that she was treated won- 
derfully on board ship. . Ellis Hand 
. was vei-y much feared, as in Austria 
it i.-; called "ThD Cu„e.'' and many 
horrifying tales are told concerniilg 
toi'.dition"; thcre.'Howevcr, Miss Exner 
says she left the ship at 3;30 p.m. and 
by u o'clock the ^ame evening she had 
passed through the formalities re- 
quired at the island and was on her 
way to New York city. .Everything 
progressed with. the smoothness of a] 
nipchine and everyone was very kind ■ 
to her,..JIiss Exrior asserts. | 

Miss Exner speaks English fluently ■ 
- nnd pro-'^nectiye piano pupils need j 
have no fear they will not be ab^e to 
I'nder.itnnr' her. She is cvidentlv_ a 
very .well bred young ladv of high 
sncini standing in her native" country 
■ and v.'il' find a ready welrome in -the 
rncial circles of Thief River Falls. 
The Tribure wishes- 1<) extend a v«l-^^x 
come to the little stranger and f®ls- 
confident she will b; rcpcive.l \3th

'Why Worry?", Neys: Com 
edy Said to Be Most Spec- 
tacular Produced. 

The hills around Culver City re- 
sounded with the infuriated firing .of 
more than a thousand Mexicans ar- 
rayed in rival fighting units. The 
booming pf cannons made natives 
tremble, in fear of .earth shocks. In- 
coherent commands were hurled in ev- 
ery direction by excited generals. 

It might have been a great dra- 
matic spectacle in the making for the, 
mbvfes, yet it was all being done in 
the spirit 'of fun — the spirit that per- 
meates Harold Lloyd's greatest Pathe 
comedy, "Why Worry?" 

It was for this newest of Lloyd 
laugh shocks that these awesome 
scenes were being enacted. Men fell 
right and left hit by cannon shots, but 
they escaped uninjured — ^the "shots" 
were only-cocoanutsi 

"Why Worry?" is by far the big- 
gest production ever made by Lloyd. 
The picture was produced on tiie most 
lavish scale. Big sets, big crowds, 
and big people — the biggest was John 
Aasen, ah army in himself, towering 
8 feet 9 and a quarter inches above 
the ground, weighing 460 pounds (ex- 
clusive of his shoes, which weighed 
twenty pounds a piece), and mth 
hands that resembled a couple of Ar- 
mour's pet hams. 

Aasen, who is making his screen de- 
but in "Why Worry" comes from 
North Dakota and *as seen in this 
city three years ago traveling with 
a carnival ^yhich played at the fair 
grounds and will be remembered by 
those who saw him then. 

As a special added attraction, the 
Princess management has booked .one 
of the season's best novelty thrillers, 
"Why Elephants Leave Home," with 
the greatest alUstar cast of elephants 
ever assembled, including Billigaman- 
na, the world's largest .elephant. 

This exceptional program will be 
shown at the Princess theatre Sunday 
and Monday. ti 

TwdaJ^jWy V-important subjects , were 
brou^^tup at ttie Commercial /Club's 
ay luncheon. The first. Tiald to 
dft^l^h the Coulter plan for 'the re- 
^^ot the farmers of- Red River ;Val- 
r^ North Dakota, South Dakota' and 
llSil^ontana. This bill is now before 
' ^!Boiigres&,.and is favored by those who 
realL^e that future welfare of this 
northern country hinges upon diver:- 
sified farming. ■ Thirty-three of i the 
sixty farmers present -signed a reso- 
lutionin favor of the bill, but as many_ 
of those present came in too late to 
hear the explanation of the billi the 
per centage of signers dofes not fully 
indicate rural sentiment in the: bill. 

The Coulter scheme is for a $50,000,- 
000 fund to be advanced by the; gov- 
ernment and from this, loans up to 
?1,0D0 will be available to each farmer 
or tenant irrespective of present in- 
debtedness. It must be shown \ that 
the farmer or tenant is worthy and 
that he can provide adequate shelter 
and feed for the livestock ao I pur- 
chased. Forfeiture of the livestock 
will follow failure to provide neces- 
sary shelter and feed. The loan is to 
be made to those who desire to diver- 
sify but who are unable to finance the 
change. The rate of interest is to. be 
not more than six Tier cent and the 
loan may run from three to five years,^ 
This loan is to be made for three; pur- 

One: To secure foundation herds of 
livestock for farmers who have 
(This does not necessarily mean! that 
pure blood stock alone is to be bought> 
but solid, good animals that will grade 
up high as to type; something ; that 
mil be a good g^roundwork for what- 
ever the farmer wishes to-go in for, 
whether it be dairy or ■ beef cattle, 
hogs, mutton sheep, sheep noted for 
their wool, or sheep noted ; for 'both 
qualities, or poultry, either; for eggs 
or for the. market.) ' ' : _ 

Two: To replace scrub stock |with 
higher grade animals that will return 
a profit. 

Three: To enlarge herds containing 
only a few good animals, enabling the 
farmer to produce milk, or meat^ poul- 
try and eggs for the marjcet. ; '-^ 

Alfalfa, sweet clover, com and oth- 
er feed crops will be needed for 'live- 
stock. Wheat acreage 'therefore^v?ill 

leTnoon was epent in needlework and 
m a jBocial way. At four o'clock a de- 

fertili^ an^ elinjinatipiridf weeds re^ 
suiting from rotation will increase the 
wheat lyields per acre and thus reduce 
the cost of production greatly. Thus, 
In diversification, where one article 
produced may not yield as touch as 
expected th|ere will be other things 
to fall back on and the farmer will 
be a gainer by a great deal. 

The'otheri subject brought up at the 
luncheon was the co-operative cream- 
ery, and thej loyalty the farmer should 
show toward his local cream and but- 
terfat market. 

It. is a well known fact that certain 
centralizersihave lately been reaching 
out into all sections of the counti-y, 
and by establishing depots and offer- 
ing exorbitant prices for cream and 
buttertat have drawn the farmer, 
trade away from the local creamery. 
They are able to offer more in that 
particular section because they are big 
concerns with much wealth back of 
them and they are willing to stand a 
temporary loss to gain an end. The 
end is this: When they have drawn 
the farmer trade away from the local 
creamery for a certain length of time 
that creamery will cease to exist. The 
centralized, creamery is thus left alone 
in the field and immediately lets the 
ifermers know the fact by refusing to 
buy cream iand butterfat for anything 
near the market price and the farmer, 
who began by selfcig his dairy pro- 
ducts^for more than the known mar- 
ket price ends by either selling noth- 
ing at all [or almost giving it away. 
It .was brought out at the meeting 
that if the farmers would band tp- 
gether and promise to stick by their 
local creameries for a period of five 
years this centralized menace would 
be under control and the farmer would 
have nothing to fear in the way of 
prices forilus dairy products. How- 
ever, j if the centralized creamery Is 
allowed tO: run its own course, the re- 
sult will necessarily be the failure 
of the local creameries and the figure 
of the fanner to realize anything on 
the very things that are and should be 
the staple' products of this northern 

Marketing contracts were frfeely 
signed . at !the meeting and farmers 
here evidently are not disposed to 
give : cenfaalizers much encourage-

This Bank Is Bigger and 
Stronger Tha/i Ever 

This bank takes considerable pride in .the excellent showing it is able to make 
at this time. In spite of general conditions which have made it extremely dif- / 
ficult for banking institutions in all parts of the eountiy to operate success- 
fully, The Farmers and Merchants State Bank of Thief River Falls has been 
able to increase its business and in no imcertain degree add to its strength dur- 
ing the past few months. 

Tbe following condensed statement, issued at the beguming of the new ye^r, 
tells the story more forcefully than mere assertions. Study this statement 
carefully and you will be convinced that we speak the truth when we say that 
this bank is today bigger," better and stronger than ever before in its histoiy.

Taxicab Man Held Up and 
Robbed on Village Street 

According to a story related by 
August Carlson/ local taxlcab driver, 
he was held upland robbed of ?5 in 
cash on- the streets ol Rosewood last 
Saturday evening about M o'clock. He 
states that the robbers a&o searched 
his car but found nothing of value. 
Arrests are expected soon as Carlson 
claims to know I the identity of the 
guilty parties and has turned the case 
over to the authorities at Warren. 

The first meeting of the Parent- 
Teachers association for 1924 will be 
held on Monday evening, January 28, 
according to announcement made this 
week by Mrs. E. Arnold, president of 
the organization. The e-tecutive 
board of the association met last week 
and formulated plans for the meetings 
to be held during the remainder of the 
present school year. The first meet- 
ing is styled a get-together affair and 
the officers hope that it will provide an 
opportunity for parents and teachers' 
to become better acquainted. 

The regular date for the' first meet- 
ing after the holidays is February 4, 
but as this date was taken by theWo- 
man's club for Mr. Gams of the Mc- 
Phail school for a dramatic reading, it 
was decided to advance, the parent- 
teacher meeting to January 28. The 
board is co-operating with the - Wo- 
man's club and Community club and 
hopes to arrange for a lecture on the 
world court for either the March or 
April meeting. The general topic for 
one meeting ^vill be "What the parents 
e.\pect of the schools." The teachers 
outlined quite clearly at the November 
meeting at the Central school^ what 
they expect of the parents, and this 
program is planned in order to gi^e 
the parents an opportunity to air 
their views. 

The meeting in May will be arrang- 
ed by a committee of the association 
who participate in a membership 
drive. The present membership is to 
be divided into two sections with Mrs. 
E. 0. Mogensen as captain of one side 
and Mrs. E. J. Richards as captain 
of the other side. Each captain irill 
choose a committee to assist and to- 
gether with the present members will 
engage in a contest for new membera. 
The losing side will furnish the .pro- 
gram, entertainment and refreshments 
for the May meeting. 

Present officers of the association 
are: Mrs. R. Arnold, president; Morris 
Bye, first vice president; Ole R. Sande, 
second vice president; Miss Edna Lar-

Rev. Sweger Tenders Resig- 
nation to Accept Offer 
With Pension Fund. 

Rev. T. E. Sweger of the Trinity^ 
Lutheran churcb,^ tendered his resig- 
nation at the annual meeting of the 
dongregation held on Tuesday. Rev. 
Sweger recently received .a call to 
work as representative in the Jlission 
of the Norwegian Lutheran Pension 
Fund. This Poision Fund is a benefit 
organization of the Lutherans for the 
reUel of agad[ pastors/ and is doing 
a great deal<o£ good work in.aU sec- 
tions of the country. A recent drive 
was put on to t^e a $2,000,000 fund 
for this puifpbse. Of this $570,000 
has been raised. 

When he is ■ put in charge of this 
work, Rev. Sweger will have the 
northern half of the state as his field 
and intends to < reside in Mooilieatj.. 
Rev. Sweger, however, \vill not leave 
the local churdi for some months as 
he desires to |ollow the confirmation 
class which began studying in Septem- 
ber. This class will be bonfirmed in 
Jvne-. Sometiine -during the early 
spring months; or before,* he expects 
to take a six weeks leave and will' put 
in tMs time preparing the field of his 
new endeavor3.| 

The Trinity; congregation is sorry 
I to lose the pastor, and yet it is very 
j glad that such^ an honor is ^ven Rev. 
; Sweger. The 'pastor is very much 

Oscar Paulson was the only absen< 
tee when the ci^ ;elerk called the roll 
at the adjourned meeting gf- the city 
council last nightl and in Ida. absence 
the city fathers decided that it was 
best to defer actij)n relative tb filling 
the vacancies in city '^offices T^ over 
from the meeting! the week previous, 
these vacancies being those of asses- 
sor, attorney, physician and -^health 
oflBcer and matronlof the poor farm.} 

The meeting lasted only an hoUr, 
most of tiie tmie being taken up with 
a discussion of a formal notice from 
Hansgn & Barzen company advising 
the city council that the city woijjld 
not be allowed longer to take watpr 
from the dam if the present low stage 
of water continues,' as . there is ^t 
sufflcinit to properiy operate the fl<»ar 
mill," which has prior water riglp? 
from the owners of the dam. Steps 
looking toward economy . in the i^ 
of city lights will be taken at once 
to conserve fie supply of water. 

"The annual report'of the cemetery 
commission was received and ordered 
filed, while the city clerk was authorr 
ized to send the'pltms and* specifica-- 
tions of the paying . to the engineer 
who was .in charge, this. step being 
necessary to furnish the State High- 
way commission with a copy thereof 
before the city can . be re-imbursed

'_The present plan' calls for the co-

carrying the expense incident to the 
extension 'work,' and with the state

by co-ordinating with the extension 
division of ^he university, there is lii^ 
tk doubt but -what the necessary mon- 
ey-can be- raised by the element fav- 
oring the retention of the county 
agent. I ' ' ' 

It is intended to make the work of 
the -department beneficial only to 
those whd-^vor^it and support it, as 
it is- felt that if public support is not 
forthcoming from the county at large 
through an tappropriatioh * froih the 
county treasury! the taxpayers at large 
arie not entitled to special considera- 
tion fromr the county agent's office. 
Th^re ard enough farmers in toe coun- 
ty who realize jthe value of a county 
agent to make the undertakmg a suc- 
cess, it is asserted by those in posi- 
tion to know.

hopes to. be 'able to annoimce that all 
difficulties \have been ironed out and 
that County Agent J. J. McCann will

conducted in such an able manner dur- 
ing the past few 'years.

H. E. Nelson, manager of the Thief

company, informed The Tribune this 
afternoon that his company has leased 
the C. M. Evenson building on the 
comer of Main avenue and . Third 
street^ and expects td-occupy the new 
quarters about March . 1. The store 
is at present located in the'Dobner- 
Meehan block on the comer of Main 
avenue and Second st^t. 

It is understood that the lease calls 
for extensive changes and improve- 
ments in the building, among the 
changes being a new brick wall on the 
Main avenue side instead of the large 
plate glass display window now doing 
duty tiiere. Numerous changes in the 
interior also are planned, including 
a complete repainting and renovation 
from cellar to garret. 

Tliis building has been vacant since 
the removal of the Loken stock to

The Tribune is pleased to know that 
this very desirable location is soon to 
be occupied by a concern which can

The annual meeting of the Penning- 
ton County lAutomobile club will be 
held on Tuesday, January 22, 1924, at 
the Commerical club rooms. Seven 
o'clock sharp has been set as the time

disorderly." Sheriff Ole L. Ihle and 
Night Patrolman E. L, Krogstad made 
the arrets aliout two o'clock' Friday 
morning^ j. 

Accordmg to the officials, this is 
about the way it happened: Shortly 
after midnight, .while "the night pa- 
trolman ;was attending to the furnace 
in the auditorium, -Gargrave rushed 
in and demanded the platrolman's gun, 
and also demanded that "Krogstad go 
with him, because, as he put it, "Rals- 
ton slapped m!e." Feeling that a lit- 
tle assistance in settling the matter 
might not come amiss, .the officer 
called on Sheriff Ihle for help. Be- 
fore the sheriff arrived, however, 
Krogstad ingeniously managed to get 
Ga^rave safely tucked away in the 
county jail without the latter appar- 
ently realizing what was about to 
happen.; I 

Krogstad met the sheriff near the 
Great Njorthern depot and the two 
started ; ' down town. Discovering 
Ralston' in the act of starting his car, 
they called tojhim to stop'but he paid 
no attrition to the command and 
headed for the East Side. The officers 
started i in pursuit and when about 
half a block -from the Ralston home 
they discovered the car stalled in the 
street, with lie driver vainly trying 
to get it nnder motion. Witmn a few 
minutes the bbdly overheated car was 
again ready tO'.go and the officers took 
Ralston to the lockup in his own auto- 
mobile.: ! , ' . 1

come looked doubly uncertain. At the

ket made and got three during - the

Our sleep has been disturbed by this thought: Who 
writes those bright scintillations for the Baudette Reg-| 
ion when Billy Noonan is not on the job? : 

Speaking of the useless \vaste of space, can anything 
be more useless and needless than to remind people that 
ta.\es have increased steadily for twenty years? 

Here is a friendly tip to the party who claims liquor 
may be procured from twenty different sources in Thief 
River Falk: Bring the list to the mayot's office. | 

It begins to look as if the Republican leaders are get-; 
ting ready to make use of Farragut's expression slightly 
transposed, namely, "we have met the enemy and are 
theirs." • . 

The newspapers make much of the fact that Magnus 
Johnson slept in his underwear at I^iladelphia following 
his address to the Pennsylvania bamcers; j Magnus must- 
be getting stuck up for we have often: seen him climb 
into the hay with brogans and breeches: 

The thanks of this community are due the Highway 
department of the state for their painstaking efforts to 
place in good condition all roads leading into Thief Riv- 
FaUs. And,' by the way, the county commissioners 
are likewise to be commended upon their activities along 
these linesi. 

When we see a young man reeling about the streets 
in a drunken stupor, we are constrained to wonder what 
thoughts course through the mind of the man who sol4 
him the liquor. 

The scientist who claimed we were pushed 700 miles 
nearer the sun by the earthquake in .Japan, accounting 
thus for oiir mild winter, is entitled to his guess, but 
we are wondering what pushed us so far back last weekl 

When it is considered that Thief River^Falls pays 
nearly $2,000 per month in -interest upon its bonded 
indebtedness, no one will blame the city co.uncil for 
hanging onto -the purse strings of the city like grim 
death. • , .- i 

It is pairifldly. apparent that all diplomatic relatiohs 
are off betwjseh Governor Preus and A. M. Welles, the 
red headed editor- of the Wprthington Globe. We can 
not understand how a good church goer like^ Welles 
could have such hatred for such a personally likeable 
person as Governor Preus. .

If the Postmaster General of the United States could 
see the conditions under which Postmaster Shaw and 
his aides are struggling to give good service to tile peo- 
ple of Thief River Falls, we feel sure this city would 
be provided with adequate quarters instanter. 

It dqes not happen to be our idea, exactly, but it 
meets with our approval. Simply this: Compel every 
moonshine maker to drink at least a pint of his oSvn 
concoction upon capture, thus doing away forever with 
both maker and pr6duct, saving the state useless ex- 
pense, and saving the lives of innumerable consumers 
of moonshine. ' .- 

It may;take time, but the time will surely com^ when 
it will be appareht tp all thinking people that the pri- 
mary la\^; when applied to a voting unit which has near- 
ly a million votes is about the biggest farce imaginable. 
Ability no longer counts in the quest for office, unless 
it is the ability to holler loud arid long through the horn 
of a demagogue. 

The Tribune, is strong for alfalfa. Alfalfa is strong 
for the dairy cow. The dairy cow is strong for the 
creamery. The creamery is strong for the community^. 
The community is strong for The Tribune. There is 
rotation for your whiskers. | 

Thief River Falls has a pretty fine biinch of fire 
fighters and come to think of it very little has been done 
by -the people of the city in the way of showing any 
appreciation. What's the matter with a real demon- 
stration when they have their annual ball? : 

One form of tax little considered is the moonshine 
tax. The sale of such poison benefits none, harms many, 
and is a nuisance which every dty in the state can do 
away with verj' quickly, if its officers are in sj'mpathy 
with law enforcement. Thief River FaUs %vill haye 
none of it. i 

County -Agent Taylor is making 'a drive for more

The fellow who asked the artist what he would

is in the same class with the churchman who imagines 
that writing his check will discharge his obligations to

gift. Remember the widow's mite that became mighQ'.

We have read the general statement of State Auditor 
- Chase with reference to the tax situation, and 'must ad- 
mit his suggestions are timely, but the trouble lies in 
the fact that his statement fails, as do all others which 
have come to our attention, because they iltterly neglect 
to definitely point out a system whereby taxes may be 
lowered. Reduced to the' concrete, is it not true that 
the nation, the state, the county, the city, and the town- 
ship, has been living, like the individuals, beyond their 
respective means? There is no panacea for high taxes 
that we can observe, any more than there is hope tor 
the individual who is hard pressed, except to get along 
"without, those things which we cannot afford — or cannot 
pay for.' 


Another chapter was added to the- crime record of

Perhaps: Frank Day and other opponents of capital pun- 
ishment: can advance reasons why such a beast should 
continue to live, but most people believe -that he should 
have been strung up by the neck — he and scores of other 
murderers who are much too well cared for at Still-; 
water. ' " -. :

Following the present period of depression we will 
have a prolonged era of good times, to be followed again 
by a spell of hard times and the usual complaint that 
"I never saw such hard times'- in my life." Times were 
never harder in this country than in the-80's between 
'81 and 85, but prosperous times followed until the 
country, was again plunged into despair following the 
panic of 1893. But in spite of all this the country saw 
its greatest period of prosperity during the world war. 
Now the'tinjes are stringent in some localities, but there 
never ivas so much money in the United States waiting 
for inveistment. It is coming in this direction soon,! so 
let's have a heart full of cheer in order that our phjrsi- 
cal condition may be such that we can grab a piece of 
prosperi^ when the procession again swings into view. 

Magnus Johnson has been accused in many quarters 
of being opposed to the Coulter bill now pending in con-; 
gress, ai bill which appropriates fifty million dollars for 
the use! of farmers in the wheat raising sections to pur- 
chase stock. Such is not the case, however, but Magnus , 
states that he is primarily in favor of a price fixing biU 
which will give the fanner a fair profit on his grain. 
That is what is needed for the immediate relief of the 
farinerj he asserts, and there are many who heartily 
agree with him. We believe congr^ should give its 
attention during this session to some sort of a bill whicH 
will permanently establish -a price -fixing -commission. 

Gunnar Bjomson, the sage of the Minneota Mascot, 
commenting on the agitation for 'a re-prganization of the 
Republican party, states that the need of the hour is for 
a leader who is willing to champioii unpopular ideas, 
who is willing to tell the majority that it is wrong, that 
people are being misled by- false prophets, and be willing 
if need be, to go down to defeat as the champion of 
righteousness. Possibly you are right, Gunnar; in fact 
we fully agree with you, but the trouble is "there ain't 
no sujh animal," so why waste space on such Utopian 
ideas. Our own opinion, frankly expressed, is, that 
under the present form of election machinery the sane 
thing to do is to select a man whose name, nationality 
and vote getting ability, flus a voice raised in opposi- 
tion to everything that exists on earth and in Heaven 
above, is best' fitted by nature to meet thefnemy on 
common ground. , 

A committee of the Commercial club has been selected 
to work-Out a plan whereby this community may con- 
tinue tol'avail itself of the -services of County Agent 
McCaifti; That is the spirit pf. '76. If the Farm 
Bureau i? in disfavor with a majority of the farmers, 
then the business men of Thief River Falls are false 
to their own iiiterests if they persist in maintaining it, 
but the retention of a county agent for purely agricul- 
tural purposes is a horse of another color. "Mac" proved 

himself indispensable in the sugar beet campaign, as! he I tractive rate of interest is filching badly needed fund? 
has in a thousand and one instances. He will be j in- ''''"" 'be smaller communities and diverting them to 

In times like these itwould seem as if the government 
would bend eveiy energy in the direction of helping 
distressed communities rather than to place barriers in 
the path of progress. We have special reference to the 
practice now in vogue in the middle, west whereby the 
government by the sale of savings certificates at an at- 

valiiable in the alfalfa campaign upon which so much 
depends, and we insist there are a sufficient number of 
farmers who rely upon him for assistance and advice 
to fully compensate the city and the country for theiex- 
pense involved twice over. The farmers are simply 
peeved with the Farm Bureau, but they all like McCann. 
Let us reconcile ourselves with this situation by keeping 
McCann and ditching the Farm Bureau at least liitil 
such time as a more favorable atmosphere appears on 
the horizon. 



the already well filled money chests of the lar^ center.'^ 
Why not stop this practice and give the banks of the 
country a chance to exist? This again suggests the idea 
that the government is not properly co-prdinated to the 
needs of the country. Undoubtedly .-the practice here 
complained of 'is not carried on in any malicious spirit', 
hut It seems strange that the execut-ve branch of thf 
government would exert itself strenuously to help out 
given localities while other departments are as enerqet- 
|ically engaged in knocking the props out from inunder.

The section relating to thb' creation 
of a gasoline tax caused some discus-, 
sion. and was finally passed when re* 
vised to. apply only to. gaspUpe used, 
for! transportation purposes. The op-; 
positiori to the, general sales tax was 
passed unanimouisly. . - 

"We Idepl )re the present maladjust- 
ment oi freight rates between farm 
products .and other commodities, and 
recommend ' the readjustment of 
freight! rates on th^e products, the 
price of which does not warrant the 
rates," 'said; the committee's report on 
freightjrates. • 

iUiother -recommendation was that 
'■control of; Inroads within the state 
should jbe returned, to the stat^. rail- 
way commission to the same extent 
as 'existed before the war," 

Portions {of the report relating to 
a^lcultur4 development .urged the 
payment of salaries of county agri- 
cultural agents from public funds, 
perfection jof a uniform plan of- or- 
ganization { for home and community 
work, curuulment of major drainage 
projects uiltil a greater need for xe- 
claii^tion exists, and revision of drain- 
age laws so farm lands will not be 
confiscated! by excessive drainage tax- 
ation. I j ■ . 

. State regulatory powers were -reco- 
mended over the development and op- 
eration of the state's water power and 
oyer rates' charged by public utility 
corporations for the products of the 
powerjso ias to insure" the develop- 
ment of natural resources for the be- 
nefit of the general public rather than 
for private intereste. 

Canadian farmers' organizations are 
to be asked by the Federation to get 
behind the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence 
Wateriway; project, 

"Strict economy should be. exercised 
by the schools, government and all 
other public institutions," said the sec- 
tion on taxation. The committee ad- 
ded that 1'the present tax rates are 
out of all| proportion" to the present 
farm income."

Agricultural Short Course 3 
Assured in Thief River\FUlts 
For Two Days, February 18-19 

Programs of Special Interest to Every Residei^U)£:I^iv 
nington County WiU Be Presented— Co\irse 
Under Auspices of International Harvester 
Agricultural Extension Department, j 


Thief River Fallsf and Pennington 
county are to receWe tlie benefits of 
an agricultural shtftt course this year, 
and the dates have been set for Mon- 
day and Tuesday,, February 18 and 19. 
H. C. Ohlseng of Chicago, a repre- 
sentative of the Agricultural Exten- 
sion department of the International 
Harvester company, was in the city on 
Monday and assisted in making the 
preliminary arrangements. The meet- 
ing, which was held Monday after- 
noon at the city auditoriuin, was at- 
tended by a considerable number of 
business and professional men of the 
city, together with several farmers 
and a number of ladies. The speakers 
and demonstrataors who will come 
here to assist in conducting the short 
course will be people of exceptional 
ability and broad experience. The 
sole purpose- of the short course will 
be to assist the people, so far as pos- 
sible, in solving the many problems 
of the farm, the farm home and the 
community. . ■ 

There will be demonstrations and 
discussions pertaining to the farm and 
to the home and the short course will 
be entirely different from anythmg 
■ ever held in this vicinity. In fact, it 
will be in the nature of a fanners' 
and housewives chautaiiqua. All the 
lectures will be illustrated with large 
charts or lantern slides-and education- 
al moving pictures. These pictures 
will consist of what has been declared 
to be the best agricultural reels ever 
produced. , 

The short course will be for every- 
body — men, women and children — and 
will be equally interesting and - in- 
structive to those living in town and 
to those living in the puntry. The 

public will be invited to attend all 
sessions and no admission price will

Faculty Man Helps This 
State Save Much Money 

■ Fredrick Bass, heda of the depart- 
ment' of civil engineering at the Uni- 
versity- of Minnesota, served as chief 
engineering counsel for the state of 
Minnesota in defending the $1,000,000 
suit brought by the state of North 
Dakota for flood damages six years 
ago, a suit which the United States 
Supreme Court has just decided in 
favor of Minnesota. 

North Dakota contended in bringing 
suit that drainage projects in Minne- 
sota diverted so much water into Lake 
TraversB and the Bois des Sioux river 
that the water level was raised two 
feet, causing more than 100,000 acres 
of land to be overflowed. During trial 
of'the case the original two-foot claim 
was reduced to about two inches. This, 
with other evidence, led the supreme 
court to find for the defendant state. 

The case has receieved widespread 
attention in past years, hut few know 
that it has finally been decided. It is 
said to 4iave been the largest claim 
ever'filed against Minnesota by an- . 
other state.

On Monday, January 7, Oliver 
Kesah 'and his sister, Miss Resan re- 
cieived a telegram from Fargo telling 
of the severe illness of their sister, 
Mrs. Fred Adsero. They left imme- 
diately for Fargo where they exp'Sct 
to stay for an indefinite time. 
: Mrs. Adsero has hoen ill for about 
a month with pernicious anemia and 
lately has been at the St. Luke hos- 
pital. Her condition had not been con- 
sidered serioQs until within the last 
day or so, however, when complica- 
tions set in. 

The family was quite well Imown to 
many in this town for although they 
were not residents, Mrs. Adsero, with 
her children, Mrs. Ted Torgerson, 
Hosa, Manda, Fritz, and Oscar, have 
visited in this town and with Oliver 
Besan at his home in Goodridge.

Associate Editor 

Published Every Wednesday at 
Thief River Fills, Minn. 

Entered as second class mat^ at the postoffice at 
Thief River Falls, Minn., und^r tlie Aot of March S, 1879. 

Official Newspaper of City of Thief River Falls and 
Pennington ; Coimty. 



At this season of the year niany people make it 
custom to change their modes and methods, or in other 
words, "turn over a new leaf." All kinds of resolutioiis 
are made in January, some to be kept during the entire 
year and others to be broken within a short time. 

Most of- these resolutions concern personal habits 
which the individual knows to be harmful, and which 
he feels should be dispensed with. 

Very few people, however, really get to the bottom 
of things sufficiently to discover in their own makeup 
the most vicious habit of all — that of pessimism con- 
cerning the future of this section and the inclination to 
• believe every dark<olored rumor in circulation. If 
some miraculous change could be' wrought in the minds 
of the pessimists, bringing to them a true perspective of 
conditions as they actually are, it would indeed be a big 
step in bringing about a decided improvement in. con- 
ditions for everyone. 

Have you resolved to do your fighting in ti¥e ranks 
of the optimists and boosters during the year 1924? 
They're a mighty fine bunch to be with and we know 
you'll like their company. 

Make the resolution today and keep it. 


A recent report from the state board of health says 
that grown folks need to play as well as children. It 
quotes a well known doctor to' the effect that the de- 
generative diseases nearly all result from lack of play, 
Mentally and physically we need play that relaxes tired 
muscles and give the nerves a chance "to regain Iret 
vigor. . . , . , 

It will appear, therefore, .that the modem tendency 
toward more play and amusenient is not entirely bad 
after all. Some old timers insist that everything is going' 
to the dogs because of this craving for recreauon. This 
objection comes mainly from jim^t and Nhurdened 
people whose lives are mostly. digging and Jrudgery, 
who have not come to realize what suitable recreation 
really means. j 

The conmiunity and individual citizens should prd- 
vide the right kind of recreation places for adults is 
well as children. More tennis courts, more golf links, 
more horseshoe pitching courts "are needed in this and 
every other community. . i 

Envying the other fellowVlot in life won't get you 
one on the corner. ] 

Thief River Falls is getting so dry that the water 
will no longer run over the dam. 

One trouble with the average Train of thought, is th^t 
it is made up of too many empties. 

One redeeming feature about winter this year is that 
it was almost over before it got started. ; 

One of the differences between some men and most 
dogs is that the dogs appreciate good treatment. i 

Faith is a fine thing but work is needed to make it 
effective. Have Jaith in your community and work like 
blazes to prove it. . 

This northern Minnesota weather may not be the 
most enjoyable brand for lounge lizards and cake eaters, 
but it makes red blood How fast in- the veins of real 
folks. And that's the kind of people who inhabit this 
north country. ^ ; 

Prospects are that the needy .Chipewa Indians, which 
includes most of the Indians of the Red Lake reser\'.-i- 
tion, mil receive $100 each from their tribal funds this 
winter. Wise, or unwise, ths, fact remains that the red 
men are in urgent need of money, and money is not mudi 
good to a dead Indian. 1 

A farmer from the Newfplden neighbofliood called 
at the Tribune office the other day. Among other 
things he said that for several years past the receipts 
from his flock of turkeys alone had been more thaji 
$1,000 per annum. Every farmer should talk his wife 
into keepirig a flock of turkeys. ! 

"Among those mentioned''. for governor, and that irj- 
cludes many men of many strip«, is former Senato'r 
Haycraft, pf 'Fairmont, who is a real one. He probably 
will not be'li^entiohed much, that is not enough to Ijothdr 
him anyway'jibut if such a man could by any stretch of 

imagination be pressed into service- under the accuirsed 
priiiiary law, then we will say the state of Minnesota 
would iideed be fortunate, foiujhe North Star state 
woiild have a governor aU wool and aj yard' wide. But. 
it can't be dorle. ' ^~. ■ ' : 


The only visible asset of a defunct brokerage firm in

of the large department stores in Minneapolis 
thousand dollars a day for newspaper advertis- 
mg. And they don't operate on the theory that the 
editor is a good fellow and needs the' money. Depart- 
ment store owners .are business men, not philanthro' 
pists. i . [ . ~" 

History does not record the names .of men who gavci 
up easily. The history makers were the men of indom- 
itable courage who never said die. In the face of die 
most disheartening obstacles such men come to the sur- 
face and survive while the weak ones who "yell for help 
at the first sign of disaster quickly disappear from view. 

The present immigration law is a screaming farce in 
thehumble opinion of the editor of this great palladium 
of justicie. The three per cent provision, whiclTis the 
crux of the law, militates to keep out immigration from 
the i northern sections of Europe, where our best settlers 
conie frijm, and subjects us to an invasion of undesirable 
hordes from southern -Europe. 

There is considerable shaking at the knees these days 
on the part of men in office who are' committed to the 
bonus aiid a general reduction in taxes. With Mothci 
Public' at the front door holding aloft a rolling pin, and 
the. Soldier B.oy at the rear with an adjusted "compensji- 
tion spe^r, the poor politicians may be pardoned if they 
sing "I hate to go home in the dark."

Nprly twelve million prescriptions for booze were 
issued last year according to figures just made public 
by the prohibition bureau. These were, issued by 50,000 
doctors, about a third of the medical fratemity of the 
country. A provision of the law which was originally 
intended to take cgre of emergencies has thus become 
a national scandal. We must- express some wonder 
that I people violate the law as infrequently as they do 
when we contemplate such chuckle-headed provisions 
inseijted in the law by the representatives of the people.

Helimig the Fanner. 

January 21, 1924. 
.Editor Triburife: 

We have noticed in the press that 
there is a move on. foot to app\y for 
a $50,000,000 loan through congress 
for the purpose of buying up blooded 
stock for the -farmers throughout the 
northwest. Now $50,000,000 is a lot 
of money and If that amount of money 
could be put into the use indicated in 
a right way-^towards the upbuilding 
o£ the country 4n general and for the 
welfare of its people, it sure would 
be a grand thing. It neither ^cali 
nor will until; adjustments are rpade 
tiiat will make such a thing possible. 
To loan out to a bankrupt set of farm- 
ers this amount of money as suggest- 
ed ^ould simply bb a detriment to 
them and an additional burden under 
present condition?. Knowing as we do 
that in the state of ■ Minnesota, «from 
seventy five to. eighty per cent of; the 
farmers and .more^ 'have a past.) due 

mortgage, most) of tiiem upon their 
farms from thirty to one hundred and 
forty and fifty dollars | per acre and 
more, a sum representing i just about 
twice the produdng valjue of the land 
itself under present conditions, and 
a debt that can jnow be lifted by its 
present owners, (>ther siates worse off 
yet, such conditions must be overcome 
and changed to j harmonize with the 
times we are living ii before any 
business, revival 'in genbral can ttake 
place.'" ■ A "I 

In the matter of reconstruction, the 
first thing to do is to J "squeeze the 
water" out of the artificial land! values 
created in war time an^ ^ ditch l^e 
whole thing. Let. the money leaders 
take their losses in the ^m'e way that 
the farmers, do and then come back 
to the real producing jva|ue of the 
land itself, reduce the jpresent loans 
upon Buch a basis to si point that 
would comply with the j principles of 
a land loaning policy based upon ac- 
tual land value. .{This wjould ^ve the 
present occupants another chance to 
win back their homes Then come on 



with your "Fifty million dollar" loan 
and boost the farmers along with a 
few good cows, sheep or hogs, and the 
farmers will set the wheels of prog- 
ress in motion, and this country ^dlll 
in a short time redeem itself and in 
time will recover to some extent the 
losses sustained by 'all concerned. 

We have talked reconstraction since 
the time of war,^d it is time that { 
a fountain was layed and pemfan' 
ent steps taken towards the welfare! 
of the people in general iii this coun- 
try, i 

Reconstruction work in beBalf of the 
people in general is a state and na-; 
tional problem and it Is ', high Vmi\ 
that oar representatives awa^e te

farmers to go home and "slop their |

Kittson; Recording to official records 
at the St. Paul! office of the hew Min- 
nesota Potato- Sxchimge, is the ban- 
ner county in the istate,' in point of 
.acreage under I contract More than 
80 per cent of ^ the .potatoes in the 

county! are covered by contracts to 
the assodationj the total acreage be- 
i^g almost double the original esti- 
mate of 4,364 ;acre^ needeid to com- 
plete the quota. 

■ 'The first week in January.saw. the 
organization with n:arly 7,000 mem- 
bCTs and 1^6,000 acres under con- 
tract Twelve Icounties hove obtained 
their quotas. In the Red Biver Val- 
ley, aU countibs but Clay and Polk 
have reached their; goals. Polk lacks 
but 2,000 acres an3 leaders say that 
another 10 days will put it across. 

The openinff of tlie year was mark- 
ed by the effective defeat of thie cam- 
paign designed by ;^orces antagonistic 
to co-operative marketing, to wreck 
plans in Minnesota,! North and South 
Dakota, according fo S. G. Eubinow, 
campaign manager.; 

A Chicago produce trade pubuca- 
tion wHch early in iDecember printed 
lengthy Teports, th'e trend of which 
iridiiated practical j failure of co-op- 
lerative inarketing in the potato fields 
of Maine, in Dec : te and Dec 29, 
printed artticles which entirely dis- 
sipated such rumors. These articles 
have been widely -reprinted in Min- 
nesota. . ! j . , ■ „ ., 

"The net- result of the attack," said 
Hr. Eubinow,, "was] to give the forces 
of co-operative marketing an oppor- 
tunity'to compareiits work with that 
of the dealer-.specnlative system and 
we have won a notable victory,, for 
fanners generally ;now know that co- 
operative .marketing of potatoes^ is 
proving as effectiv^ as it is in selling 
oranges, or cotton | or tobacco."

him in this hafcpy state of mind. 

Last -week ^hlle at Salol, he chanc- 
ed to overhear a remarK abodt a cer- 
tain widow in that village who was 
said to be in! very diilicolt financial 
straits. This widow, Mrs; Anna Bur- 
strom, lost her husfjand Jnan^ auto- 
mobile accident on July 12, last sum- 
mer. Mr. Bpratroin had earned a 
policy for ?1,B00 in the company rep- 
resented by Mr; Dudley but had al- 
lowed it to lapse suveral; montljB be- 
fore his death and no effort had been 
made to collect the insurance, as the 
beneficiaries were ^ot aware that it 
contained an [extension clause. 
Mr. Dudley, startefi an~ihvestigation 

. Just at the present time, when the 
advisability of re-engaging the county\ 
agent and continuing agricultural ex- 
tension work for another year m Penn- 
iuitori county is under discusaon, ihe 
Tribune feels that attention should be 
called to^a few of thethmgs which 
actually have been accompUshed 
through the office of County Agent 
J. J. McCann during the time he has 
been in charge. The following list is 
by no means complete but shoidd

Experiments carried on have proved 
a lack of phosphates in Penmngton 
county soU. Over tiventy carlyads of 
this fertilizer have since been brought 
into the county, with gratifymg re- 

Largely through the efforts of the 
county agent has Pennington county 
been brought into the limehght as the 
natural home of alfalfa aud sweet 
clover, and the acreage of these crops 
has increased by leaps and bounds 
during the past five years. 

The county agent has been instru- 
mental in bringing about the growing 
of sugar beets here on a large scale, 
being actively in charge of the crop 
eacli year. 

The task of conducting potato cam- 
paigns and signing up 1400 acres of 
potatoes in the Marketing association 
was accomplished largely through the 
county agent. , ■, .. ^i, 

Nearly six thousand head of cattle 
have been tested for tuberculosis in 
the county during the past few years. 
The dread disease, blackleg, has 
been checked in Pennington county 

Poultry schools have been conduct- 
ed and 6,000 birds culled during the 
past year. 

The county agent took the leading 
part in putting across the crops and 
-poultrj' show here in December, and 
the poultry shows held each year here- 

Forty thousand pounds of wool have 
been marketed . through the county 
agent's office. The wool this year 
brought 16 cents above local mai'ket 
prices. ^ . ., 

The county agent is secretary of the 
county fair association and of the 
Thief River Falls Commercial club, 
and has done valuable work for both. 
Nearly 200 boys and girls have 
been enrolled in boys' and girls' dairy 
calf, poultry, sheep and bread clubs. 
Nine of these workers have received 
free trips to the state fair and one to 
Chicago. Next year 15 will be sent 
to the state fair and one to Chicago. 

More than a hundred farmers have 
been assisted in keeping account 
books. • • . . 

Nearly tivelve hundred farm visits 
have been made. 

More than ten thousand people have 
called at the office on business rela- 
tive to county agent woirk. 

Over eight thousand telephone calls 
have been answered at the office.

Twoi Championship 

Games Played on Strange 
Floors Fought Next Week 

Next Friday night and Saturday 
night, I the Lincoln basketball quint 
will play the! first two district games 
on strange floors. On Friday the team 
plays with Fosston's team in Fosston 
and on Saturday night in Mcintosh. 
Both the Mcintosh and Fosston teams 
are known to be good, stiff players 
and the fact) that iiiey are to be met 
on their hoirie floors means that the 
local basketball team will have an 
extra hard battle to fight. However, 
the Lincoln 'boys have been so con- 
sistent in scoring, that everyone is ^ 
sure they will do their very best to ' 
bring horiiei the bacon; especifflly so 
smce these are district games and 
mean so much in winning the district 

Those who will most likely make 
the- Fosston-Mclntosh trip are: 
Paranteau, Penney, Sether, Sorenson, 
Olsori, Mulry and Bennes. The boys 
will play the same positions held m 
the last game. . '

\Mieat Growers Association 
Endorsed by Farm Bu- 
reau State Board. 

OrganizationThoroughly In- 
vestigated Before Pass- 
ing of Resolution. 

The Minnesota Wheat Growers' as- 
: sociation ivas endorsed by derectors 
! of the Minnesota Farm Bureau Feder* 
! ation last week. A resolution urging 
i Minnesota farmers to support the 
i wheat co-operative was adopted, after. 
' the Farm Bureau i)oard had conducted 
a searching inquiry into the plan and 
the affairs of the agency. 

Before passing the resolution, the 
Farm Bureau leaders held a joint 
meeting with directors of the Mmne- 
sota Wheat Growei-s' association and 
spent a full half day obtaining in- 
formation they desired before taking 
formal action. The resolution says the 
affairs of the Wheat Growers are be- 
ing carried on in' accord with the 
principles of co-operative marketing, 
such as the Farm Bureau sponsors. - 
The resolution was passed at the 
close of a 2-day session by the Farm 
Bureau board, during which time it 
,, took steps to carry out the agricul- 
tural program adopted at the r^cenf 
I annual convention. 

In appointing committees to serve 
during the year, president Reed nam- 
ed* Hagbarth Bue, newly elected sec- 
ond vice president, to committee as- 
signments held by V. E. Anderson, 
former treasurer. 

Mrs. E. V. Ripley of Menagha was 
authorized to represent the Farm Bu- 
reau at a conference of home demon- 
stration agents at University Farm 
early in Ferbuary. 

To carry out organization plans 
adopted by the convention, the presi- 
dent and secretary were empowered 
to obtain the sendees of an organiza- 
tion manager. 

President Reed was authorized to 

accept an invitation to make a series 

of speeches in Canada in behalf of 

the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence water- 

■ way project.

doubled the amount* requir^ by l^^i 
the superintendent explained. 

"The tabulation ak of December 31 
shows that the state banks] are more 
than holding their (fwn," M,t. Veigel 
said. "The total deposits in 1,092 state 
banks, nine savings! banks and twen- 
ty-five trust compai^es on that date 
were ?433,698,832.76, as compared with 
8422,300,7^18.17 on Decembet 29, 1922, 
an increase of more than 311,000,000 
of deposits during tiie last lyear.

Tomorrow's Club Meeting 
Will Start Campaign for 
Adding More Members 

Among other important matters to 
come up at the regular meeting of the 
Commercial club Thursday noon is the 
question of putting on a membership 
drive in the near, future... The club is 
doing fine work at present but natur- 
ally could do much more if its mem- 
bership were substantially increased. 
"Ways and means to accomplish this 
will come up for discussion at the 
luncheon to be held tomorrow. . 

Other matters of importance, in- 
cludinf^ further discussion of the coun- 
ty agent proposition, are slated to 
come up at the meeting tomorrow. 
Every member of the club and -others 
interested are urged to be present. 


Invitations have j been extended to 
all the schools in this district to hold 
the district basket iball tournament in 
Thief River Falls on March 6 and 7. 
The athletic board,' composed of Sup- 
erintendent M. C.I Hayes of East 
Grand Forks, G. Holmquist iof War^, 
ren, and A. C. Peterson of Aigyle, de- 
cided in favor of holdingLthe tourna- 
ment here at their Tast meeting, 
which was held inj Stephen ph Janu- 
ary 24. They left jit to a referendum 
vote, but most of ithe teams' seem in 
favor of it. The) commercial club 
has guaranteed expenses to $500 and, 
the city council has offered the free 
use of the auditoriam for the occasion 
so that with such.|inducements. Thief 
River Falls is almost certain to lie 
the favored city, j ; . 

As far as place in the championship 
games is concemal, the teams stand 

N. A.. Nelson; Rollins Hosiery Mills 
vs. N. A^ Nelson. j . 

The above list of cases was. taken 
from the record on Tuesday noon and 
chances are that several more actions 
will be filed before the calendar for 
the term is made up. } 

A number of the .cases listed above 
are of considerable public interest, es- 
pecially that of C. M.t Carlson against 
the dty of Thief River Falls to force 
payment of the final estimate for the 
erection of the filtration plant. . An- 
other case which should prove very 
interesting is that of; E- O. Erid^on, 
former chief of poHpe, against Chas. 
B. Bradley, now serving sentence for 
violation of the prohibition laws. This 
is a suit for damages on accoont of 
certain charges- and : affadavits pre- 
ferred by Bradley whole Erickson^ was 
chief of police. Owing to the fact that 
Bradley still is in Jdil; it is tiiought 
the case will be continued to the June 
term of court. I 

Incladed in the calendar sre 12 per- 
sonal property tax cases and two snits^ 
involving the. payment of motor ve- 
hicle taxes. The -two latter are the 
first motor tax cases to be tried in 
Pennington county. - i

"Richard, the Lioi^-Hearted" 

Based on Adventoes of 

Famous Mpnlarch. 

The Teapot Dome scandal" has the 
country by the ears just now but this 
newspaper, foUoiving the lead of the 
Legion Weekly, pointed out exactly 
what happened more than a year ago. 
We viewed with suspicion the trans- 
fer of the oil deposits of the govern- 
ment from one department to another, 
the subsequent leasing to the Sinclj^; 
interests, when there really w»s jjo 
necessity for the action. The ;^ Ifite" 
President Harding, who was one of the 
best natured men that ever lived, pro- 
bably surrounded himself with more 
lame ducks than has ever before been 
the case with a President of the Unit- 
ed States, and those who have follow- 
ed recent developments are not in the 
least surprised at the disclosures 
made. Mark our word, Alaska escaped 
a wholesale plundering when Albert 
B. Fall retired from the cabinet. 

Prosperity assuredly runs in cycles. 
Always has and always" will and we 
firmly believe4he cycle of good times 
is just around the comer. Get ready 
to grab a' chunk of it. Be a booster 
and help get the country in a good 
frame of niind and yoju will be sur- 
prised ;at the results. 

Great Picture Comes to the 

Princess Theatre Next 

Sunday and Monday. 

Democrats who are making a lot of 
capital out of the Teapot Dome dis- 
closures have siezed upon something 
which is really of minor importance 
when compared with the plunder 'of 
this coim'try by "th^ war ",' profiteers* 
during the lamented Democratic, ad- 
ministration. - .', ';,', , 

If we could have President .Co<il- 
id'ge's ear for a moment we -should 
advise him to get rid of Denby, Wedcs 
and Daugherty. This 'trio "more than 
any other factor contributed to the 
disrepute of the Harding administra- 

The place for the next district dele- 
gates convention is Thief River Falls. 
The delegates will be well entertained 
here and the omen of good luck which 
hovers over this city will assuredly 
bring good luck to the Republican par- 

ty. ■ 

Magnus Johnson wants the Presi- 
dent to select a Farmer-Labor attor- 
ney to investigate the oil scandal. 
Wonder- if he had Tommy Siillivan in 
mind ? 

If Ole P. B. is wise he will drop one 
initial. Think of J. A. A. Bumquist 
and J. A. 0. Preus and the trouble 
they have had. 

When a popular novel wins a tre- 
mendous following and ihe public sets 
up a clamor for "more," the author 
woos th^'muse and writes a sequel. 
, This device of the book world has 
been adopted by the motion picture 
industry, for a -picture which really 
is a "sequel" to! "Douglas Fairbanks 
in Robin Hood,, has been produced by 
the Associated Ajuthorslunder the title 
of "Richard, theiLion-Hearted," a ro- 
mance of the Third Crusade based on 
Sir Walter Scott's famous novel, v"The 
Talisman." ■ 

Such a tremendous success was 
scored by "Robin Hood" that the new- 
ly organized firm of notables who are 
incorporated under the title of "As- 
sociated Authors" screened a story 
which takes up the thread^ of the ad- 
ventures of thef great King Richard 
from the time that he left England 
until his return. I Taken with the story 
lold in the Douglas Fairbanks' pro- 
duction, it gives 'a fairly complete his- 
torical representation of the famous 
historical periodjof the Third Crusade. 
Months of research work and. care- 
ful preparation ^haye gone into this 
production whidi will be the initial 
release of the ; Frank E. Woods- 
Thompson Buchanan-Elmer Harris- 
Clark Thomas organization for Allied 
Producers and Distributors corpora- 
tion and which comes to the Princess 
next Sunday and" Monday. Several 
Hundred volumes of history and litera- 
ture were studied by a staff of re- 
seareh experts. I 

With the mass of detailed 
tions out of the way, the anchors' 
trio, which jointly supervised the pro- 
duction turned their attention to the 
selection of the cast 

Wallace Beery immediately was 
chosen and signed up for the feature 
role of King Richard,; since his port- 
rayal of the Crusader 'king in "Robin 
Hood" had wonja big popular follow- 
ing. Kathleen Clifford was cast for 
the role of Queen Berengaria; Mar-- 
guerite de la Motte for Lady Edith 
Plantagenet; John, Bowers for Sir 
Kenneth, :&iight of the' Leopai^; 
Charles Gerrard for.Sultan-Saladi&; 
Tully .Mai^fllUfor the ,Herimt^,df 
Engaddi; "Clarence Gelbert as Sir 
Gohrade de Montserrat and Wilbur 
Higby as Sir Thomas Devaux. 

Sets rivalling those of "Robin 
Hood" in lavisbness were worked out 
by Mrs. Una Nixon Hopkins, the art 
director. Priceless Turlash rugs, pot- 
teries-from P^estine; made-to-order 
furniture . of ebony and mother-of- 
pearl; jeweled (mirrors, combs and, 
chests, which are reproductions of or- 
iginals in the- British' museum; espe-" 
cially designed; costumes of silks, 
satins, brocades and furs — ^these are 
few of the items of "special pro- 
duction expense," while for some of 
the big fight scenes a reproduction of 
the town of Joppa, Palestine, was 
erected. l 

sentatives appeared 
cil asking that the city install a city 
scal^ to insure, privajte parties getting 
full \*eights when buying fuel or sell- 
^g produce. While| they had rip spe- 
cific instances of pndue advantage 
Wving been taken by any dealer in 
fusl or 'any produce buyer yet there 
wete plenty of ugly stories floating 
about and the men thought the city 
should be willing to give this protec- 
tion. 1 ' 

Alderman H. A. Brumund explained 
that for four years) the old council 
had'endeavored to find-a way to over- 
come ihe talk and |to provide, such 
protection but it w^ found it would 
cost the city approxjimately $2,600 for 
a scale and at least $100 per month 
for a care taker. JThis was deemed 
too expensive at this time. 

In this connection a bid was read 
from ttie Plichard |company, offering, 
to lease their scale to the city for $40 
per month for a tri^, so that the city 
could ascertain if there was a real de- 
mand for.a'ttjty scale. The matter 
waS'referred to the street committee 
for investigation and disposal as they 
deem expedient, j ^ — 

An informal discussion of the light- 
ing situatibn was before the aldermen 
for nearly an hour [without any decis- 
ion being arrived at. Chairman Mar- 
tin E\'enson thought the city should 
purehase another I^iesel engrine as an 
auxiliary in case of trouble to those 
now in use, ancj. was ' partially sup- 
ported in this idea by Chris Porter,' 
■while H. A. Brumund and Oscar Paul- 
son declared in favor of the city pur- 
chasing the prasehj: dam. ,T. A. Fos- 
sum did not express any opinion and 
Oscar Ramheck was absent. The inat- 
ter was laid over until some future 
time, although all | realize that somti 
important step rau^t be taken soon tb 
protect the city against a possible per- 
iod of darkness in | case of engine 
trouble or water shortage like that 
for the past ten dajys. 

L. C, Nielsen,, applicant for assist- 
ant city clerk, asked what disposition 
had been made o^ his application 
which had been referred to the city 
attorney. H. O. CHommie repliediJiat 
he was not prepared as yet to ihak^ 
any disposition ofjthe matter, 'which' 
would have tb copie up at a regular .

The new city council is iinding plen- 
ty of work on j hand, lastinigbt being 
the fourth Tuesday ' night in 'this 
month that the body has met to tran- 
sact; business, i 'JBach meeting has 
brought forth Iplenty of matter re- 
quiring close attention and more is in 
sight. I 

The meetingilast night was a special 
one called to' consider the bids of the 
various banks'^as depositories of city 
funds and for consideration of bids .on 
city printing. ! 

The Fa'rmeiB and Merchants State 
bank, the First and Peoples State 
bank and the First National bank all 
had bids in for city funds, offering to 
pay two per jcent monthly on daily 
balances, based on the average of the 
month ptevioos. A personal bond ac- 
companied the bid of the First and 
Peoples State! bank, while the other 
tw(> banks offered to f uriiish bonds' ac- 
ceptable to ttte city. The bids had 
called for surety bonds, but a repre- 
sentative of one, of the banks '-was 
present and stated that it would be 
impossible foi* the local banks to get 
surety bonds this year, as they Bad 
taken on all such bonds as are'permlt^ 
ted. I 

Last year the banks paid the city 
three per cent and the aldermen 
thought that two per cent vt&s a little 
too much of a cut and postponed ac- 
tion, for one tveek. '■ - 

The" Times! presented a bid of 60 
cents per folio for first publication 
of all city noticed, and of 30 cents for 
all subsequent publications which is 
two thirds o* the legal rote as fixed 
by the state, [and all that the city 
charter permits the dty to pay. The 
Times was tl^eref ore made the official 
call paper of the city for the ensuing year. 
46' Jas. Bamett and other labor repre- 

"Kathleen",was presented under the. 
auspices of the Community Girls* club 
on Tuesday-evening at the auditoriuin 
and -proved to coihe tip to 'all "expect ^^ 
tions in-theway^'Dt"tirettinfess; cafcfiy 
music and a splendid comedy plus 
plenty of heart throbs. The .cast, pick- 
ed from .the local talent of which Thief 
River Falls seems to have an abundant 
supply, proved themselves worthy, of 
much praise on thej part of all who saw 
them ^oing through their parts. ' 

The comedy., parts, taken by Dave 
Robinson, Teckleyj Bramble; Lester 
Guss, Lem Underduck; Miss Lyda 
Batten, .Arabella" 1'WiIkins; and Nor- 
bert Holzknecht, Hans Swindler, were 
well taken and played with sudi evi- 
dent appneciation for comedy values 
that the audience continually kept in 
uproadious laughter. Especially so 
-with the old Dutch storekeeper, Hans 
Swindle!:, who simply could not have 
been any better. The songs sung by 
these four people tickled the audience 
pink and could the play have been so 
arranged, the soiig, "Deduction'* and 
."Arabella" might [have continued until 
the singers were jvoiceless. 

The part of Kathleen- was very ably 
taken by. Mrs. J. ^.'McCann, who sang 
her s^gs prettily and portrayed a; 
lovely 'ivillage .maiden with much- 
girace. 'Jimm^' Slianton became a vir- 
ile youth, strong j in honor and very! 
true to life in the -hands of Lawrence; 
Mickelson. He !sang his songs well,| 
and made a lover to be loved and sym- 
pathized -everyone in the mis- 
fortunes that seemed to follow him in 
his dealings^ witli Ned Rollingston. 
- Miss Dora Eelly, the villa^ vamp, 
played her. part |ahd sang with such 
evident enjoyment and abandon that 
she "took" immensely. The villian 
was -played by TSlra Porter, and Ned 
RoUingston.was portrayed to the beat 
of Ws"abili^. .The part of Sachael 
Flyiin, Flynhville's wesdthlest citizen 
and;miele of the] heroine, Kathleen, 
was very ably, done by E. 0. Mogen- 
sen, and Clarence Pope did the part of 
Higgins, the butjer; to perfection. 
' The music of the play was very 
catchy, played -j^ell by the orchestral 
and combincid with the many excdlent 
choruses, -made si. hit with everybody. 
Special mention is made of the Dance- 
0-Majua tfohg as done by Earl Effing- 
er and the Danc^-Manla girls. This 
was a.yeiy snappy song and was put 
over in^ll^eat style. 

Due credit must be rendered Miss 
Mary Cecelia Freeland, who has been 
in charge of the! musical comedy. Miss 
Iceland Mouldered an immense load 
in attempting to put on such a large 
production with! |saeh speed and more 
than one prophesied failure because 
of the I short tfine between beginning 
the play' and jiatting it on. It was 
very much because of her imrelaxing 
efforts, both before and on the night 
of tte play that the public went away 
so well satisfied 

All sections participating in the 
spelling contest beeun'over two weeks 
ago have been heard from except sec-

'.';(lonceming the. holdup case' of Au- 
gjast Carlson at [jRosewood; The young 
man who reported in The Tribune is 
well known [in Thief Kiver Falls. It's 
a lie-:rthey never took any .88 caliber 
cartridges awayjfrom me. The trouble 
was he^had a little too much "moon." 
They held me up right in the main 

street of Rosewood and searched all! 
my pockets. Two men^held my wrists 
so I couldn't defend myself and I ask- 
ed for a search warrant. They took 
hvo five dollar bills out of my pock- 
ets and asked me where my car was; 
I told them across the street, so they 
searched every comer of my car: 
Then one of my friends said: "What 
business did you have to search Au- 
gust Carlson's car. I want^ to know 
becausie I came along with him." This 
young man said: "Just stay away 
from here and leave 'niie alone." 

1 like to see people have good times 
at the dances but when they do this 
kind of wbrk we should look into the 
matter. What have we laws for when 
we are not protected by the citizens. 
I would like to see everybody enforce 
the law and do their duty and have 
more respect for their neighbors and 
friends. — ^August Carlson. .

the evening. At 11:30 p.m. precisely, 
a circle two-step was begun and while 
the various evolutions of the dance 
were being gone through the judges 
tried to do their duty. The number 
of eccentric, funny, and . pretty 
masqueraters worn made the task of 
selection very difficult to hadnle. How- 
ever, it wah finally decided that Toin 
Gargrave, dressed as a tramp, and 
Mrs. Morris LaSall, who expressed 
the "Irish Washerwoman," jig idea in 
clothes form, had won the "most com- 
ical" prizes; while Miss Myrtle Helge- 
land, dressed in a pretty harem out- 
fit and Charles Warner, who was the 
evening's "Valantino," were given the 
prizes for being the best dressed lady 
and gentleman of the evening. 

After the unmasking, a large num- 
ber of those who had either not cared 
to mask or had given up the idea be- 
cause of the threatening weathbr, en- 
tered the dancing fioor. The evening 
program was, ppntinu^ until a very 
early hour, with most of those jjresent 
Unwilling to leave. The music for 
the eyening was snappily furnished 
by the Blue Bljize orchestra. A word 
must be said about the -decorations 
which weire very .gay. At the backot 
the hall, jiist in front of the balcony 
was seated a "fire chief," all rigged 
out in hoots, rubber coat, and helmet, 
-who presided 'o.ver all -the dances. Be- 
sides this oddity there were .many, 
streamers of serpentine and Japanese 
lanterns strung up into very prStty ef- 
fects; . . • 

Beauty and the Beast clash together 
with dramatic effect in "little Johnny 
Jones," the George M. Cohan' stage 
success starring Johnny HinCs,'~to be 
seen in f the photoplay version at the - 
Princess theatre Friday and Saturday. 
' The "Beauty" takes the form of 
a charming little English girl .who 
decides to forget her blue^lood and 
tradition because of her love for John- 
.ny Jones, the American jockey; and 
the "BeaE^" is a professional gambler 
ofshady past, who tries to put stum- 
bling blocks and dangers in the path 
of the young" Yankee lad so that he 
might win the girl himself. 

It is a romartce of the turf, the story 
of Johnny Jones, the Yankee jockey, 
who is scheduled to win the English 
Derby. A bar in his way comes up 
in the form of Robert ' Anstead, a 
gambler, who knows his own horse 
doesn't 'stand the ghost of a chance un- 
less Johnny is put out of the way and 
disqualified. A plot bristling with ad- 
venture' is concocted to prove that the 
Yankee; has agreed to throw away the 
race, and Johnny has to show that ac- 
tions are stronger than words, before 
he is reinstated in the heart of his 

Johnny Hines, called the George 
M- C(Si^ of the screen, has the stellar 
role of[ Johny Jones, who rides his 
'favorite horse, Yankee Doodle, to vic-

(Why pupils fall In school.) 
There's a reason jfor everything. 

As I have- heard tell; 
So there must be for failures. 

Ajid successes as welL. 

There are as mony tjjpes of failures, 
As there are shades of blue; 

But the failures that I X write ' about. 
Are from, a schblarTa point of -view. . 

There are problems in aUfetlniei 'i 
Problems great and prblems small; 

But to the average student, 
Success in BChopl I^ King of all. 

But BtlU there are somie pupUs, 

Who see not things .this way. 
They keep on doing Iblngs - 
For which later ithey must pay. 

These 'selfsame pupils come to school. 

And study In pretense.' ' 
But when It comcB'ddwn to a test, - 

We find they are qtiite dense. 

■■---] ■■ \ .- ■■ ■ 

The reason's very simple, 

Ab you will soon agree. - 
'Twas the reading ofja novel 

Instead of history] 

Now if you are a boikworm, 

Make your hob^y of some use; ■ ■

enough to keep a regular business
